I have had nothing but wonderful experiences with South University. Even though one of the classes was hard, the professor stuck with me and wanted to see me succeed. There goal is to make each student a success story. I would love for tuition to go down but I doubt that will happen and even though that probably won't change, I will continue my studies and graduate with my graduates degree in nursing (FNP)! Each professor brings their own unique experience along with their teaching style and I love it! South University-Columbia campus is the place to be!

I like that the teachers work with you. They want you to learn and to succeed! Their are labs and study groups and library resources that assist in making learning easier. This learning experience is much better than USC's .
I enjoyed my experience at South university, especially the professors and academic advisers. They helped with everything, even when I thought I was going to give up. It really helps when you have supportive people around.
